Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide. 

How is Wilsonville Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Wilsonville Subaru makes the holidays magical!  –  Fletcher J

From mid-November through early December Wilsonville Subaru championed the Make-A-Wish Oregon Toy Drive to support their Holiday Magic campaign. Over three weeks, the team collected a Subaru full of toys for children currently in Randall’s and Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospitals that Make-A-Wish Oregon will deliver during special events at each location. Their efforts to promote, support, and fulfill the need to bring magic to these children and their families who are going through difficult circumstances make them pillars of our community and people that can always be relied upon in challenging (and good) times. Thank you to Ron, Dick, and the outstanding team at Wilsonville Subaru for their support this holiday season!


Share the Love  –  Taft M

Thank you to Wilsonville Subaru for supporting Wilsonville Community Sharing for the 3rd time during the 2019 Share the Love event!! The happy people you see in this photo and MANY others give thanks for the $24,958.00 given by Subaru to support our work. We are a food bank, responding to the need for food by the 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 6 children who are in need in our area. In the past year, we have been able to distribute 92,560 pounds of food to assist 3,651 individuals and 1,465 families! Wilsonville Subaru has been our steady supporter as we do that work. But we are much more than a food bank! The support you have given us, beginning in 2017, has enabled us to reliably fund a part-time referral specialist to connect our clients with further resources and opportunities so that we give a hand up as well as a handout. We are able to respond to the need for an increasing number of families for help with utilities, or travel help, prescription needs…and we have been able to add a counseling benefit to our work so that deeply rooted emotional issues can be addressed. This work has had a powerful impact on our community and Wilsonville Subaru, as our greatest supporter, stands at the center of that impact. Thank you, Wilsonville Subaru, and thank you Subaru of America for making such a difference in our community!


Oregon Trail Rally  –  Doug H

The Oregon Trail rally is proud to partner with Wilsonville Subaru to put together a car race that fuels the passions of adventurers In Portland and the Columbia river gorge. Rally is an adventure and a great way to experience the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Our event brings together the communities of Portland, The Dalles, and Dufur Oregon with Goldendale, Washington. The rally community also loved dogs! Dogs are a common sight at rallies. This year, we're also partnering with Northwest Animal Companions, a pet rescue that works day and night to help ensure every pet finds a home.


Supporting a Love of Reading & Learning in Kids  –  Susan H

Wilsonville Subaru’s generous support of the Wilsonville Public Library Foundation helps provide free books to children from birth to age five in our community. The Library Foundation is the local partner for the Dolly Parton‘s Imagination Library program and each month this program mails a high quality, age-appropriate book to the children enrolled at no cost to the child’s family. Makenna who was enrolled at birth told us “I really love getting books in the mail.” Makenna’s mother, Jennifer, adds “we all like to see what surprise book comes in the mail each month!” Currently, there are over 800 Wilsonville children in the Imagination Library program and in the past seven years, local kids have received more than 53,000 books. Just over 1,000 have “graduated” from the program on their 5th birthday. Countless parents have shared how excited their child is when their new book arrives each month. Families reading together promotes early learning, increases success in school and inspires a lifelong love of reading. A parent is a child's first teacher and through the Imagination Library and the Library's outreach to families, parents have tools they need to make their children succeed in school and life. Children enrolled in the program enter school better prepared to learn and read. Little Jeffrey’s grandmother is astonished by how long he can sit quietly and be read to, sometimes for almost an hour. We hear from pre-school and kindergarten teachers about the positive impact that book ownership and family reading have on children's’ success in school. They indicate that children participating in Imagination Library have more advanced early literacy skills than other classmates. We appreciate Wilsonville Subaru’s commitment to the Wilsonville Public Library Foundation and local families through their support of Imagination Library and other Library programs for kids like Summer Reading and Science Adventure. Thank you, Wilsonville Subaru!


Wilsonville Brewfest Sponsors 2018  –  Katie G

The 4th Annual Wilsonville Brewfest in Villebois raised $12,500 for Wilsonville Community Sharing. BIG thank you to Subaru Wilsonville for being a premier sponsor! Without this partnership, our community impact would not be possible. There were close to 1,000 neighbors and friends taking part in enjoying local brews, live music, and food. It is fun for the whole family! We look forward to partnering again and can't thank Subaru enough for the #LovePromise and their commitment to our local community. Cheers to Subaru!


CAnby High School Girls Soccer  –  John M

For the past two seasons, Wilsonville Subaru has been generous enough to donate $500 a season to help our program. With your generous donation, we have been able to purchase gear that will protect us from the cold and rainy nights. The donation has also gone to bringing down the overall cost of participation, making it affordable for everyone! We cannot thank Wilsonville Subaru enough and we look forward to continuing our great relationship with them!”


Casual for a Cause  –  Leigh C

November-December 2018 Wilsonville Subaru participated in Casual for a Cause where the team members were able to wear jeans on Friday if they donated $10.00 or 10 cans of food to Wilsonville Community Sharing/food bank. They were able to donate $480.00 in cash and multiple boxes of food for the food bank! As always they continued to help us help others less fortunate in our community.


Food Bank Help  –  Leigh C

Wilsonville Subaru goes above and beyond helping members in our community access food by picking up fresh meat, produce, bread and other fresh food items from our local grocery stores weekly and bringing them to the food bank. They also provide help with volunteers to pick up and deliver large donations such as holiday meals that we received for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Without their help, we would not have access to these generous donations.


Partnering with Wilsonville Subaru Animal Lovers  –  Jane M

Wilsonville Subaru partnered with the Oregon Humane Society for the “Subaru Loves Pets” promotion during June and July in 2018. The great animal lovers at Wilsonville Subaru really knocked it out of the park, especially for a brand new promotion. During the promotion, the purchase of a new Subaru triggered a donation of $25 to OHS. “The resulting donation will do so much for our community,” said OHS Corporate Relations Manager Jane Morrison. “Each year OHS finds forever homes for over 11,000 dogs, cats, and other companion animals, more than half of which come from other shelters in Oregon, Washington, and California. OHS also helps in communities suffered from natural disasters, including those impacted by Hurricane Florence this year.” In addition to pet adoptions, OHS provides medical care from shelter pets and spay and neuter services for pets whose owners are low income. Our investigators are working to prevent and stop animal neglect and abuse throughout the state of Oregon. Children are the focus of the OHS Humane Education program, inspiring over 1400 kids each year through in-school programs, as well as youth volunteer opportunities. To celebrate the success of the Subaru Loves Pets promotion, Jane Morrison (pictured here with Paul Heinrich and other Wilsonville Subaru animal lovers) was joined by OHS Animal Behavior Specialists Paulina and Nick Tehran for a program on the “Mysteries of Dog Behavior,” also known as “Why does my dog do that?” We can’t thank the great folks at Wilsonville Subaru for their support of the Oregon Humane Society this year!


Wilsonville Subaru Loves Pets!!!  –  Jane M

All of us at the Oregon Humane Society would like to thank all the Portland Subaru retailers for raising and donating $56,900 to us during the Subaru Loves Pets Event! This tremendous donation will help hundreds of pets and families right here in Oregon! The Oregon Humane Society celebrated its 150 year anniversary this year and we could not do it without the strong support of Subaru and the local Subaru retailers. We would especially like to thank the team at Wilsonville Subaru for their generous donation of $9,000. Thank you from all the Pets!!!
